Theresa May will today meet the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party in Downing Street to hold talks for a deal for the future government.

The prime minister will welcome Arlene Foster to lay out out the terms of the DUP’s backing for her minority government.

May says they will have no veto on key policies. Ms Foster says her party has the national interest at heart.

The Commons will choose a new speaker and Lords will begin to be sworn in during the afternoon.

May will also hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, including looking at how to tackle online radicalisation and terrorism.

Speaking on Monday, Foster said: “We are going into these talks with the national interest at heart.

“The Union, as I said before, is our guiding star. We believe in the Union, we believe in national stable government and that will be at the forefront of our mind going into these talks again tomorrow.”
